Calculus I (1210), spring 2008
You can come see your exam and final grade on Wednesday 4/30 2-3 pm in my office (JWB 112). If you can't make it, write me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 801-585-9113 to schedule an appointment.
Final Exam: -The Final Exam will take place on Monday 4/28 from 3:30 to 5:30 pm in the usual room (LS 101).You may not use books, notes, or calculators during the exam.
-The material covered by the Final consists of all sections in the book from which homework was assigned, namely sections 0.4-0.7, 1.1, 1.3-1.6, 2.1-2.5, 3.1-3.3, 3.5, 3.6, 3.8, 4.1-4.5.
-Review: there will be a review session on Thursday 4/24 at the usual time and place (3:40-5:40 in LS 101). If you don't know how to prepare for the exam, you can (a) review all homework assignments (especially those which you had trouble with) and chapter reviews (b) go over the quizzes, and (c) go over the Midterms.
-I will be having office hours on Thursday 4/24 from 2:30 to 3:30 pm and on Monday 4/28 from 1:30 to 2:30 pm (in my office JWB 112).
Final Grade: As announced in class, your final grade will be the best of the following 2 grades: (1) the weighted average of your homework average (10%, drop 2 lowest), your quiz average (10%, drop lowest), Midterm Exams (20% each) and Final Exam (40%); (2) your grade on the Final Exam. In concrete terms, this means that you can still do (very) well even if you didn't do so well on the Midterms.

Lectures: Tuesday, Thursday 3:40-5:40 pm in LS 101, Professor Paupert. The second period of the Thursday class will generally be a problems or review session.
Textbook: Calculus with Differential Equations, 9th ed. by D. Varberg, E.J. Purcell and S.E. Rigdon.
Material: The material we will cover in this course roughly corresponds to chapters 1-5 of the textbook. The preliminaries (chapter 0) correspond to a Precalculus course and should be familiar to all students. However if some parts are new to too many of you, we can review them as we go along.
Homework: Assignments will be given on-line each week, usually by Wednesday. The homework problems need to be done in order to develop command of the material; this will prepare you for the quizzes and exams. In writing up any problem, you must show all the steps leading to your solution. A few indicated problems are to be submitted at the beginning of the lecture the following Tuesday. Selected problems will be graded and returned in class the following Thursday. No late homework will be accepted.
Quizzes: There will be short quizzes every other week, at the beginning of the Thursday period, starting January 17, except before and after exams. The quizzes should be easy and are only here to encourage you to review the material regularly. You may not use books, notes, or calculators during quizzes. There will be no making up of missed quizzes. (You may however be excused for a valid reason, in which case you should notify me before the quiz).
Exams: There will be two Midterms and a Final.You may not use books, notes, or calculators during exams. Following the department's policy, there will be no making up of missed exams. If you miss a Midterm exam for a valid reason, the grade for that exam will be replaced by a neutral grade (a weighted average of the other exam grades).
Students with documented disabilities or other special needs that require special accomodation must register with the Center for Disability Services (Union 162, 581-5020). After that, contact the instructor at least a week before each exam; we will need to have received confirmation from the Center for Disability Services.
The Midterms will take place during the first period of class (3:40-4:30) on Tuesday, February 12 and Tuesday, April 1, in LS 101. The Final will take place on Monday, April 28 from 3:30 to 5:30 pm in LS 101.
Grading: Homework: 10%. Quizzes: 10%. Midterms: 20% each. Final: 40%. The two lowest homework grades will be dropped, as well as the lowest quiz grade.
Office hours: Thursdays 2:30-3:30 pm in my office, JWB 112. If you can't make it, write me an email at email@example.com, or call 801-585-9113 to schedule an appointment.
In addition, you can get help from a Tutor at the Math center, located on the first floor between the two Math buildings (JWB and LCB). The hours are Monday-Thursday 8am-8pm and Friday 8am-6pm (starting January 7).
